We’ve been working with USC over the past year distributing A*B Arms™ brand products,” said American Built Arms Company Founder and President Jason Combs. “After reviewing the market for tactical bolt-action rifles, it quickly became apparent that working together to design and distribute a lightweight, modular bolt-action rifle system was the way to go.”
